Thursday, November 3 at 2 pm EDT

Omni-channel customer expectations for faster fulfillment and free shipping, coupled with pressure to minimize the high cost of carrying inventory across channels, are driving companies to rethink their networks.

  • The impacts on inventory from omni-channel fulfillment
  • The strategies and enabling technologies that will improve your inventory performance
